CSS Question

Have Writing Beside Div

I'm trying to have two divs (one with an embedded YouTube video sitting over an image, and another is text) sit side-by-side. I would usually do this with the

float: left;
rule, however it's trickier with the CSS/HTML combo for the video over the image.

How can I go about doing this?

My code:



.backgroundimage {
position: relative;
top: 70px;
right: 390px;
float: left;
}
.Youtube {
position: absolute;
left: 280px;
bottom: 46px;
}

<div class="backgroundimage">
<img src="http://truespeed.ca/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/tvscreen.png" alt="null" />
<iframe class="Youtube" width="479" height="269" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/6ydYvG52K-E" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
<p>Hi, this is some test text!</p>
</div>




Answer

Check this JSFiddle to see it wroking.

So I think instead of using <img/> you can use the CSS property to display image in the background. The CSS code:

.backgroundimage {
  position: relative;
  background: url("http://truespeed.ca/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/tvscreen.png") no-repeat;
  height:329px;
}
.Youtube {
  position: absolute;
  left:10px;
  top:10px;
} 
p{
  position: absolute;
  right:0;
  width:140px;
}
